They go out as anything from a duo to a six-piece Irish band amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller.

"All our guests thoroughly enjoyed it" "Hi Mick, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding at The Dreys last Sunday (15th July 2018 Sunday The Dreys, Rumstead Lane, Sittingbourne, Kent, ME9 7QL). We had a fantastic time, and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed it. Your caller (I've forgotten her name) was super patient and clear and you were all very effective at encouraging everyone to fill the dance floor. Apparently the venue owners had never had a ceilidh before but now thinks they're fantastic. I'm not quite sure how a venue like that has never had a ceilidh before, but hopefully there'll be many more there in the future! Is there anywhere you would like me to post a review online? Or you can take comments from this email if you like. Thanks again" Joanna Bradley and Emily Lee 22nd Jul 2018
